This lazy strawberry parfait recipe is delicious, low-fat, and low-effort. Perfect for a weekend treat!
- Low fat vanilla cake mix (with additional ingredients as required on the packet) or you can get even lazier and just buy a vanilla cake (butter cake or madeira cake is a-ok too!)
- Low fat vanilla yogurt
- Fresh strawberries
- Dark rum (not recommended for kiddies - use juice or just skip it for an alcohol free version)
- Honeyed macadamia nuts (optional) for a touch of decadence. You can buy these by the bag in most Aussie grocery stores, but I known that these can be difficult to get for my overseas readers. You can make your own from raw macadamias of substitute another type of sugared nut. If you are in a nut-free house, then honeycomb toffee would be a great substitute.
Make (or buy) a vanilla cake. For yummy moist dense cake, I like to cheat a little and substitute either 1/2 cup of low fat vanilla yogurt or sour cream into my low-fat packet cake mixes. Just reduce the liquids to make sure you get a good batter consistency. Crumble it into lovely chunky bits (be sure to taste test for quality). Wash and slice your berries. Layer cake, yogurt, berry, cake into your cups. Drizzle with rum. Top with yogurt, sprinkle with nuts, and indulge!
